About : Hiking : la Fare lake

This route, which runs through the southern part of the Petites Rousses plateau, can be done in both directions. The lakes encountered come from glacial digging and have only been cleared for about two centuries. It is for this reason that the vegetation is rare, the soil being poor and not very thick.
